A. You can use the VMM PowerShell environments Get-VM cmdlet to find information about VMs known to SCVMM. You can pipe the objects from the command to the Select command to view only certain properties. Use the command

 

GET-VM -VMMServer savdalscvmm.savilltech.net | Select Name, OperatingSystem, Memory, VirtualizationPlatform, HostName, Status | ft

 

and you'll see output similar to this:

In the example above, I piped the output to the Format-Table cmdlet (FT), but the default shows as a list, which will be more legible.
